The Best 'World of Warcraft' Characters

List Rules
Vote up your favorite WoW characters.

World of Warcraft has been a classic game franchise that almost anyone has heard about - you don't even have to play games to know just how popular it is. Known for its addictive attributes and incredibly detailed storyline, it's no wonder Blizzard has had such success with the series. Each questline you take is influenced by the world around it, and that world is relatively big. With so many characters out there, it's hard to find the best. 

Whether you're looking for new characters to try or want to see which characters are the best, this list was created to determine which characters are the most popular. Is there a particular character or class you prefer to use?

Let us know your favorite by voting them up! And if your favorite WoW character is missing, be sure to add them to the list!
